Steve and Dominique called us last summer when they decided to move into an older home in Corvallis. The house had a dated kitchen in the center and with walls surrounding it, resulting in a restricted layout. With Rod Terry’s 3D design and Structural Engineering by Dan Herford, we supported the roof trusses with large LVL beams in the attic. Then we tore out the interior walls, the brick “pizza” oven, the dated kitchen, the old carpet, the brick fireplace, and the small windows.

The new floor layout is wide open, perfect for entertaining guests. The kitchen is now spectacular in the center of their home, the highlight is the wood countertop Steve built with bar seating. We installed beautiful Cherry Shaker cabinets, granite countertops, two new skylights, and a new Andersen patio door.  We also repainted their home and installed Red Oak hardwood floors throughout the home.

In the living room, we installed new Cascade Pro trapezoidal windows to complement the roofline. We removed dated wood paneling on the walls, installed seismic upgrades, and insulated their drafty walls. We removed the old wood stove and brick surround and installed a new gas stove. Steve and Dominique are very happy with our work.

Please give us a call if you would like to open up your cramped house layout 541-754-6326.

    I have a turn of the century mortis and tenon barn of about 4500 sq feet I would like to trade for a pole building at another site. Would you be interested in a trade or maybe you are looking for vintage old growth fir materials. Call if interested at 503.680.3838, I live a few miles south of Albany.

      I don’t have a need for that much vintage old growth fir, good luck finding a home for your old barn.
